Selling my E90

Call me crazy but my lease takeover is up and I need to get into a different vehicle. Take advantage of my low residual and buy my car out. I'm sorting out the details of my replacement vehicle but the short story is that the buyout will happen at a local Audi dealer as part of the process of me leasing a new vehicle.

Here's what I've got:
2011 E90 M3 sedan
VIN: WBSPM9C53BE203199
Miles 32,085

Car options are:
Alpine white
Black leather
M-DCT transmission
Competition package
Premium/comfort package
Cold weather package
Tech package Nav with phone and audio streaming Bluetooth
Enhanced Premium Sound
BMW Assist
Carbon leather inlays on dash

The only option it doesn't have is BMW Apps (Facebook, Pandora, etc).

Upgrades include:
1. Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 275/35/19 rear and 255/35/19 front (about 75% tread life)

2. Stoptech Street Peformance brake pads. Freshly installed with ATE fluid flush in early September. Stock pads available if wanted.

3. BPM Sport stage 1 tune with Euro MDM and multiple coded items - Cost was $1000 and made a huge difference in how this car drives.

4. Vorshlag camber plates up front with performance alignment at -2.5 deg front, -2 deg rear

5. OEM exhaust mod, perforated pipes replaced method, muffler can painted black. Also includes original unmodified exhaust if you want it.

6. Michelin PA4 winter tires in 245/40/18 square on 18x8 M5 replicas (style 343M) no TPMS, with 15mm and 20mm Macht Schnell spacers - Negotiable with sale.

7. Track wheels Apex Arc-8 18x10 ET 25 in gunmetal (No TPMS) with Nitto NT05 275/35/18 square set used for 4 track days (only track days the car has seen) - Add $1500



This car is in excellent condition, no issues, all records available - serviced at BMW Seattle.

Selling for $45k, possibly available immediately.

I know, seriously. There are a number of factors contributing to this decision but the main one is that I need more versatility. My normal regular outdoor activities have taken a big hit with owning a RWD, low to the ground, fancy sedan. Trust me, I will miss it, but I want my life to take a different direction. I'll be back to sports cars in the future when my joints don't work and all I can do is drive fast cars. Sadly I don't have room or much budget for 2 cars.

Sent the link to a friend and have been pushing hard for him to buy it. From the sounds of it, he's pretty interested! Hoping he'll get in touch with you - his name is Elijah.

What kind of Audi are you looking into? Can't go wrong, I'll always be an Audi person at heart! Not to mention my winter "beater" is a B5 S4.

I have one likely buyer and I will know more after Saturday. I'm picking up an SQ5 and honestly I can't wait to get back to some good AWD. I've always liked Audi although never owned one, and the SQ5 is pretty darned awesome. I thought I wouldn't like it but went on a few test drives and was really impressed.

haha Good question. I'll still hang around here, maybe I'll organize drives. Everyone I've met on here is great and I'm sure I could keep up with most of the pack.

Very awesome! My hubby just recently bought an X5 xdrive 50i m-sport, but if the SQ7's were out, that would have been a high contender.
What dealership? I've got a good referral for University Audi in case you need or want a good salesman!

I'm working with University, Barrier, and even dealerships in Oregon. The issue is availability. I don't have enough time to be able to order so I'm stuck with what is coming in and what is on the lots. I'm looking for any of 4 colors with leather but surprisingly they're hard to come by!

Say hello to the SQ5! It's very different but still super fun to drive. Now I can haul my dog, mountain bikes, skis, stop worrying about scraping driveways, hitting potholes, losing traction, and stop feeling like I need to drive 100mph all the time. Apparently my M3 was a cop magnet also, as I got pulled over 4 times in the last 4 months. Twice for really ridiculous speeding tickets, once only for no front plate, and once for apparently accelerating too fast and passing people on a two lane on ramp without exceeding the speed limit. This car makes for a better commute too as I'm in residential or stop and go twice a day.

Anyway I loved my M but unless I can track it 20 times a year (and I can't), it's not the car for me. I'll still be on here but you just won't see me in a BMW. Happy driving!
